Twitch Staff: These are the fine folk who make Twitch tick. Say hello!
Admins: Paid personnel who review grief reports and enforce our Terms of Service. In short, they help us keep Twitch safe and fun.
Global Moderators: A Global Moderator is basically a Super Channel Moderator: all the privileges of a Channel Moderator across all channels on the site. Global Moderators are volunteers who have extensive experience and knowledge of all things Twitch. They're here to help!
Broadcasters: This is the owner of the channel that you are currently visiting on Twitch. Broadcasters have the ability to enforce chat rules for their channel and appoint/remove channel moderators.
